mariah carey michael buble christmas special Michael Buble and Mariah Carey hit 'All I Want for Christmas is You' for holiday specialWednesday (Dec. 18) Michael Buble aired his third annual holiday special on NBC, which featured guests like Cookie Monster, Mary J. Blige and, of course, Mariah Carey. The diva stopped by to sing her modern-day Christmas classic, “All I Want for Christmas is You.”

Do you suppose she ever gets tired of singing that song? It has truly become one of everyone’s favorite holiday songs since its release in 1994 and is seemingly everywhere this time of year.

Anyway, she and Buble did a rousing version, complete with jazzy horn section and Buble’s signature Sinatra sound. It was definitely a highlight of the special — video below. And also, video of Mariah singing “Christmastime is in the Air Again,” a beautiful ballad that was another highlight.

What did you think of the Christmas special?
